THE first series of 'Social Cinema' will kick off on Wednesday, February 24, with a programme of online cinema screenings. This is the first event in the outreach programme run by the South East Cultural Centre which is curated by the Gorey-based Richard Carr.

The programme, known as 'Fortnights', aims to make leading cultural events accessible to those who may not be in a position to access or attend live events which are held in the cultural capitals, arts centres, theatres or cinemas.

Series one of Social Cinema will run from February to May. It will screen films from Oscar nominated director Hanna Polak; internationally renowned artists Brian Maguire and Ai Weiwei; as well as films highlighting the current Syrian refugee crises and some home-grown sensations such as The Pipe.

Once a fortnight on a Wednesday at 7 p.m., people are invited to log onto the interactive viewing room on the South East Cultural Centre's website. There they can watch the film and take part in discussion as everyone experiences the film screenings together. For more, visit
